Which continent stretches from the Arctic Circle to the equator? thanks
Asia is the only continent that reaches from the Arctic Circle to the Equator. At it's northernmost, thousands of miles of Russia's northern coastline of the Arctic Ocean are well above the Arctic Circle. To the south, many of the thousands of islands that make up the archipelago of Indonesia are located either on, or south of, the Equator.
The only other continent that comes close is North America. This continent easily qualifies as part of the frozen Arctic with Canada and the United States having much land north of the Arctic Circle. It nearly reaches to the equator, but its southernmost nation, Panama, lies a few degrees north of the equator.
